Think James Bond meets Inspector Gadget for our round-up of the top 5 trending gadgets for 2015.
This ‘throw and go’ drone camera could make awkward selfies a thing of the past. The drone camera follows you from a variety of pre-programmed angels, including a 360º aerial shot, by tracking a small unit which you can carry or wear. Made from lightweight, waterproof polycarbonate brushed aluminium with a 20 minute flight time, it’s the perfect camera for overhead action shots when you need your hands free.
Okay we know that golf is fun enough without adding extras but the team at Golf Skate Caddy has managed to combine the practical needs of the golfer (long distances, heavy golf bags) with a fun new transport system, which is a cross between a Segway and a skateboard. Gentler on the course than the traditional golf buggies, and quieter, these really could be the gadget of choice for golfers in 2015.
This smart pen from Livescribe would feel right at home in the inside pocket of James Bond’s tuxedo. It may look like a fancy fountain pen but the Echo Smartpen writes, digitally stores written information and records audio with playback, which can then be downloaded and shared via a USB connection.
I’m not sure if James Bond ever had anything as mundane as a ‘home’ but if he did then you can bet he would have secured it with an August Smart Lock. This keyless locking system allows you to activate locks via your smartphone. It gives you the flexibility to remotely allow certain users one-off access or access for a limited duration. And don’t worry if you loose your phone, you can quickly and easily disable phone authentication via the website.
It doesn’t get more James Bond than storing data and transmitting from your cleverly disguised silver cufflinks! Inside one of the oval Ravi Ratan cufflinks is a 2GB mini USB while the other contains a WiFi Hotspot device giving you the chance to surf the net at any formal function, which fails to keep you entertained.
